Oh sydney

Thursday, October 4


Despite living right next door, it was actually my first time there in Sydney and Canberra. My three days there were certainly not long enough for me to really get to know the city, but it was definitely a great "introductory" few days. Many times a day I would find myself saying, "this is like the (insert melburninan place) of sydney", but there are times where I look around and it just feels completely unfamiliar.

I loved that about Sydney, experiencing both the familiar and unfamiliar. I'm hoping to share more photos from my trip soon. Until then, some of my favourite moments there:
▲ Sitting on the curb of the darling harbour in the evening, enjoying the breathtaking view of the city.
▲ At the Sydney Aquarium, and seeing little kids in complete awe of the penguins: "oh my gosh mum, it's happy feet!" or yelling "dad dad dad! I just saw a real shark!" So precious.
▲ Spring in Sydney is like summer in Melbourne on a good day. So darn comfortable.
▲ Dinner at Mamak, which ensued the thirty minute wait for a table in a queue thissssssssss long that it is totally worth it. Best malaysian food I've eaten outside of malaysia!
▲ Sounds of the city hustles and bustles that lulled me to sleep at night.
▲ Helping to take photos for tourists, knowing that I'm helping them recall this day when they look back at the photos sometime in the future.

After a trip like that, it's hard to come back and just settle back into the daily way of things again. I'm still in a bit of a relaxed, dreamlike state after this break from home and I'm not so sure I want to lose that yet.
